Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, April 12
This is a strong day for your imagination as well as for forgiving, resting, and releasing stress, dear Aries. Venus and Neptune form a sextile today, connecting your sectors of values and money with your soul sector in pleasing ways. There is a desire to go with the flow and accept things as they are today, and this comes as a nice break from current pressures. You might decide to do something creative, physical, or otherwise tension-relieving now. Giving out the kind of approval and affection you’d like to receive is a good idea now. If you’ve had difficulty with, or have been holding grudges against, someone in your life recently, sound energy is with you today for letting go and moving on. Don’t allow others to rent space in your mind if it’s not doing you any favors. Promoting peace and harmony is paramount now, and is mutually beneficial. This might also be a strong day for intuiting new ideas about how to handle your finances, although it can also be a time when you are especially attracted to beautiful or expensive objects and comfort foods or things.
A Venus-Neptune sextile today is very beneficial for you, dear Taurus. For one, Venus is your ruler, and its harmonious aspects are particularly relevant to you. For another, Venus is currently in your sign, boosting your magnetism, appeal, and good fortune further. You tuned into the more subtle or otherworldly elements of life right now, and thus your understanding of others, yourself, and your purpose can increase now. Helping someone out, offering sincere and mindful advice, being a source of comfort, and inspiring others with your insight can figure strongly now, and can also lift your spirits. This is a wonderful time for friendships and the spirit of friendship. It’s especially satisfying to put others’ needs before yours at the moment.
While the Moon at the top of your solar chart today emphasizes your goals and responsibilities, dear Gemini, there is terrific energy for your imagination as well. It’s, in fact, a beautiful day for professional and public appeal, although a bit of mystery surrounds you and it’s all part of the package! You could find it quite easy and natural to smooth over tensions today with a Venus-Neptune aspect active. This is a good day for the compassionate understanding of matters that have previously frustrated you, as it’s time to let go of anger so that you can move forward and live with yourself more happily. Career matters can be serendipitous, and drawing on past ideas can be successful. Love’s complications may be of the pleasant variety right now. This may be a beautiful day for creativity, but perhaps more so for envisioning something than producing it in physical form.
There is much in the way of ease and harmony in today’s aspects, dear Cancer. Unless your natal chart shows something else altogether, these influences can serve to boost your mood and inspire you to great heights. It’s also quite fine if you prefer to use this smooth energy to relax and unwind, as it’s terrific for smoothing things out and releasing tension as well. With a Venus-Neptune influence now, forgiveness and grace are reigning over insecurities. Very good energy is with you today for social situations, understanding, and increased faith in your life, as well as your future. Few restrictions are in place for reaching out to others. This aspect involving the goddess of love, Venus, and dreamy Neptune highlights your friendship and adventure sectors, and you may want to take a chance on love and friendship with a kind gesture or expression. Imagination is heightened, and inspiration can be found through friends and non-routine experiences. Whether relationships are challenging or happy, they stand to improve now.
There is a wonderful and positive emphasis on your intimacy sector today, dear Leo. It’s a fine time for self-discovery as well as the development of a close relationship. You are in the position to see matters in a compassionate light, more than usual. Forgiveness or simply release from pressure both come more easily today. Demands on you have been more intense recently, but there are opportunities now to find the silver lining. There is calmer energy to the day. Venus and Neptune combine pleasantly and affect not only your relationships but also your business sense and professional appeal. There is an intuitive understanding of others’ feelings and moods, and this affects your dealings with them. There can be a visionary quality to your career or business efforts now. You’re likely to engage an audience, group, or important person, perhaps even mesmerizing them. The day’s energies favor small advances and subtle moves, rather than bold ones.
Today’s energies emphasize your partnership zone, dear Virgo, and a Venus-Neptune sextile connects this sector of your chart with your sector of beliefs, vision, and discovery in a pleasing way. Love matters can thrive as you open your heart. Energies of the day favor slowing down and appreciating what’s in place in your life while daydreaming about other possibilities as well. It’s a good time for connecting with people who benefit you romantically or spiritually. There can be an almost psychic rapport with certain others now. It’s also a strong time for intuiting how to manage your finances. Someone special may be looking upon you quite favorably. The key now is to attract through gentleness and warmth, and you may naturally maintain some emotional distance or an air of mystery. Compassion and understanding are highlights of your interactions.
Today’s Venus-Neptune sextile is particularly helpful for inspiring a love of your work, services, or connections to others, dear Libra. It also helps you connect with a higher sense of purpose or mission. Your day is colored by your imagination or your inner landscape and dreams. Recent problems tend to smooth out nicely now as you are more willing to let mysteries unravel at their own pace rather than push to find an answer. You’re also seen in a favorable light today. Although you may not be entirely understood right now, this can suit your purposes quite nicely. Holding back a bit can be useful at the moment. This can be a useful day for unwinding and enjoying yourself. The gentler side of your nature is enhanced, and people around you might feel you have a healing aura. Others tend to want to be around you. Intuition for work, health, and research or analysis is particularly active and accurate.
Venus forms a sextile to Neptune today, dear Scorpio, and lunar aspects are enhancing your sign. Your creativity, romance, communication, and partnership sectors are involved, encouraging you to express yourself beautifully with, through, or about others. This is a strong day for consciously choosing to let go of negative thoughts and ideas. Love opportunities can emerge, and it can be a creative, romantic time. You are more intuitive about people and especially sensitive to their feelings, and they yours. New relationships formed around now tend to have a very pleasing, almost mystical quality, while current relationships can improve as you notice things to appreciate about someone that you may have previously overlooked. This is a good time for creating, writing, and making art or music, or for appreciating and enjoying imaginative art, theater, writing, and music. Not only is loving Venus in harmonious aspect to dreamy, romantic Neptune, but both bodies are also stimulating your relationship sectors. It’s a subtle energy, but decidedly positive and hopeful. A warm, gentle approach to others is favored, and in some way, rewarded.
Wonderful energy is with you today for getting in touch with your inner needs, sense of belonging and safety, and family or home matters today, dear Sagittarius. Letting things flow naturally rather than pushing to make things right may very well be the best strategy now. There is easy, gentle, and subtle energy with you now, so that charm can be drawn upon to pursue your goals. Connections with others tend to be enhanced, and you may be experiencing some form of psychic rapport or communication. Your social life can be warm and comforting today, and it’s a good time for promoting peace, and possibly beauty, in the workplace. It’s also strong for pampering or spa-like treatments if this can be managed. You might take special pleasure in offering your help or services today.
There has been more than the usual pressure on your sign these days, dear Capricorn, but some wonderful opportunities are emerging. Today’s Venus-Neptune sextile aspect and lunar aspects complement you well. There is particularly good energy with you for communications. Mercury will remain retrograde until the 15th, and retrograde Mercury general cautions still apply, but this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some lovely conversations or communications. In-person discussions tend to fare best for you now since non-verbal communications are emphasized. You may be inspiring others with your words or enjoying some personal interests and projects that inspire you. There can be a nice release from stress now. Your perceptions are heightened, and this allows you to understand others on a whole new level. It’s also a good time for coming up with new ideas in your career or business. Your romantic imagination is stimulated now, which can be expressed or applied through relationships or artistic creativity.
A Venus-Neptune aspect subtly enhances your life in the areas of business, money, home, and family through imagination, vision, creativity, warmth, generosity, and compassion, dear Aquarius. This is a fabulous day for letting go of suspicion and negative thinking, of which we’ve had a larger helping in recent days. Sympathy for the underdog or stronger compassion for people in your life can be moving and motivating. You may play a supportive role to others, or you’re volunteering or helping someone in need. Some of you could be making a personal sacrifice of sorts for a loved one, and quite willingly so. Going the extra mile for someone can strengthen you. Circumstances may be such that spiritual support is much more appreciated, and needed, than physical or practical aid. Today can be active for helping out family members, offering an ear, or mending broken fences. Life is slowing down in such a way that it’s easier to appreciate your life and the people in it.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Pisces, forming many pleasing alliances with other planets. Even further enhancements come from a Venus-Neptune aspect that affects you more than most since Neptune is one of your planetary rulers and is currently transiting your sign. Venus is in your communications sector, suggesting that it may be through learning, connecting, communicating, and giving things further thought that benefits are likely to arise now. This can be a time when simply being around people and letting them “do their thing” is enough to communicate the best message. Personal magnetism is strong, and you can be feeling especially good about yourself and your relationships or current projects. Others seem to tune in to, notice, and appreciate the personality traits that you express effortlessly and naturally. Allow your gentle nature to emerge — own it, appreciate it, and express it unapologetically! Your words, and even your nonverbal communications, are soothing, healing, and very attractive.
